Ready to go exploring in your library? Here's a Collection of videos to get you started!
Here are three new series we think you'll enjoy!
Recommended for preK-3, this series encourages literacy using original songs by composer/lyricist and educator Dr. Al Balkin, former Western Michigan Professor and composer who wrote music for The Hobbit, as well as several off-Broadway children’s musicals. The videos include these seven topics:
This series brings local and national storytellers into the classroom and provides teachers a useful series to use when teaching about the many aspects of reading and writing. South Carolina and national storytellers perform interesting stories and talk about the craft of storytelling.
In this series, students will meet nationally recognized authors who call South Carolina home. As they learn about the writing process, students will hear what the authors have to say about making characters come alive on the page, learn how they create the plot for their stories and keep track of the action, and find out how important research is to any story, both fiction and non-fiction.
Learn from Washington Post columnists Kathleen Parker and Jim Hoagland, delve into the history and life of Julia Mood Peterkin, and find out how a team of reporters from the Charleston Post and Courier worked together to create change in the legal system regarding domestic violence.
View resources culled from numerous Series, including S.C. Hall of Fame, Artopia, and Original SC.
Our Libraries, Literature & Learning Collection will grow over time, so please continue to visit, as more content is added.
